Basics of photorelays and their usage considerations as replacements for mechanical relays
Relays are widely used in various electronic devices to control a load while providing electrical isolation between two circuits. There are various types of relays, each with different principles of operation. Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (“Toshiba”) provides an extensive portfolio of semiconductor relays called photorelays. The following describes the recommended applications of photorelays while providing answers to frequently asked questions and examples of Toshiba’s photorelays.
Latest trends in the motor control technologies recommended by Toshiba and their applications
Motors essential as a source of mechanical power for various electric and electronic systems. It is generally considered that motors consume lots of power and generate considerable noise. The fact is that a motor driver IC significantly affects the power consumption and noise of a motor.Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation (“Toshiba”) has more than 40 years of experience in motor drivers. At present, Toshiba’s product portfolio contains roughly 170 motor drivers. The following describes Toshiba’s latest motor control technologies while providing answers to frequently asked questions and examples of Toshiba’s motor driver ICs.
